LUDOWICI - Long County had its annual Earth Day celebration no April 18 and around 150 people came out to enjoy the day.
Wednesday's Earth Day celebration in Bradwell Park turned out to be a fun family event. Several hundred children and parents showed up to learn more about celebrating and taking care of our planet. I hope you were able to attend. If not, you missed an afternoon of fun and easy ideas.
Years ago, if someone asked where to buy fresh eggs, the answer would be, "Groover's Egg Farm in Gum Branch." I recall going there many times in the 1970s and buying dozens of eggs. They had many long chicken houses on the farm. I don't know if there are any operating egg farms in Liberty County today, but chicken production is a huge business in Long and Tattnall counties.

They weren't playing nice at the Capitol this year, and when legislators grabbed their toys and went home, neither chamber had won the transportation legislation tug-of-war. Just because no agreement on funding was reached, however, doesn't put the brakes on Georgia transportation policy.

Editor, An editorial cartoon by R. McKee serves as a modern take on the old Hans Christian Anderson tale about the emperor who was swindled by to weavers who promise to make him a suit of clothes that is invisible to people who are stupid and incompetent.

Editor, Today, I was nursing Gauge, my 2-month old son, at the Dunkin' Donuts in Hinesville. I have nursed in public like this numerous times. I sat in the corner and even had my friend stand in front of me to make sure nobody saw anything. As I was leaving and getting Gauge buckled into his car seat, an employee followed me to my car and told me that from now on when I nursed in the donut shop, I needed to cover up because customers complained.

Back in 1966, Bobby Fuller sang about, "Robbin' people with a six-gun, I fought the law and the law won." And rightfully so - robbery is a crime. But what happens when it's the law doing the robbing and the law wins?
On my "to-do" list last week was a reminder to call former Gov. Carl Sanders and see if he had any thoughts on how to get the field at Sanford Stadium named for UGA's former coach and athletic director Vince Dooley. I knew he would like the idea and perhaps could jerk a few chains I seem to have been unable to rattle thus far.
